Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 13; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 8; Taggstrålar i analfenan 3; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 6. Recognized by the large rounded head and deeply incised membranes of the spinous part of the dorsal fin (Ref. 48635).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 24.6 - 29, mean 28 °C (based on 956 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01862 (0.00745 - 0.04655), b=3.01 (2.79 - 3.23), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trofisk nivå (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliens (Ref. 120179):  Mellan, lägsta populationsfördubblingstid 1,4-4,4 år (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (32 of 100) .
